Craske in Shetland Wool Jumper by Charl Knits
This jumper can be worn by men or women, a cosy over-size go-to piece to pull on when the coastal breeze picks up. It is knitted with a high ribbed funnel neck which can be worn up or folded down. The top half of the body is knitted in the original “hailstone” stitch taken directly from the original Ganseys on both the front and back body with a neat central shoulder seam and chunky rib trims. The body is generous and boxy and is gently curved towards the front. The sleeves are slightly long and can be worn turned back with a ribbed cuff which can be pushed up to scrunch, or pulled down to cover the knuckles. Reverse knit panels run down each side seam – just like on the original Ganseys, this jumper is intentionally simple in pattern and form to complement the beauty of the stitches.
This authentic Shetland wool comes from Shetland breed sheep who live on the island of Shetland, this makes the wool very rare and highly sought after. The intensity and gradations of colour found in each thread are unique to this yarn. Traditionally used in “colour work” or Fairisle knitting, the wool has a depth to colour.
